Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side.

Enamel Works from Arthur Hash Workshop at Penland

I am really thrilled with the way the works came out that I made while I was Penland School of Craft this summer in Penland, NC with Arthur Hash. Here is one of his sexy laser enameled brooches that i love!  Even though I was fortunate to study  enameling under Linda Darty while I was at  ECU, this class was jammed packed with refreshers and new information.  I was really pumped to be able to study with Arthur.

Tara,
No charms for me, sadly. I have been way to busy this summer to be in the studio. I will let you know the next time I will be in Greenville! We need to get together.

Yay for featured artist Tara Locklear! I miss you! What's going on with you? Virginia is still good... miss all you metalsmiths in NC though
